What Wix plan should I choose? Our video analysis:
Wix Premium Plans: in a Nutshell
Let’s start by looking at the Connect Domain plan – strange name, huh? Basically the main difference between this and the Free plan is the ability to connect your own proper domain name with your Wix site (e.g. www.yourname.com). The Wix ads will remain on your page, which makes this plan not such a great deal – at least not for a business.
Combo comes with a domain name if you pick a yearly subscription. You can get .com, .net, .org, .biz and a few other extensions (see screenshot). Please note that it’s only free for the first year, the regular price is around $10 per year.
Basically Combo has everything except an online store option. The only difference between this and the Unlimited plan is storage and bandwidth.
Our recommendation: do not pick Unlimited to start with, even though Wix says it’s the most popular plan. If you do ever come close to exceeding your Combo plan’s storage or bandwidth limits, Wix will inform you well in advance. Upgrading plans is always possible and existing funds will be credited. For average sites, Combo’s data limits are more than enough.
The Wix eCommerce is the only premium plan that includes an online store. While Wix is a decent tool to create a website, we don’t necessarily recommend using it to build an online store. It does allow you to display your products well – design is Wix’s biggest strength after all – but for this kind of money there are just much better ecommerce alternatives out there.For users in the US and Canada there is the VIP plan available. Its features are based on the eCommerce plan, but it also includes enhanced support. Their experts provide a one-time review of your website where they give you feedback on many aspects (Design, SEO, etc.) of your website.
What about Email Accounts?
One thing Wix doesn’t solve particularly well are email accounts for your domain name. You can sign up for G Suite through them but you’ll have to pay at least $4.08 per month. Your Wix plan will suddenly cost you a bit more per month. Compare that to Jimdo where you get a website, domain name and an email address for a lot less than that in the Jimdo Pro plan.
Another alternative is to purchase the domain name through a third party (e.g. Namecheap) and get your email accounts from there. This will cost you around $10 per year.
Wix is certainly not the cheapest option out there, but it may well be the best-looking one. For most users the Combo plan is probably the best option as it’s ad-free and you’ll get your own domain name. We also like the fact that Wix offers monthly payment options as many other website builders only have yearly subscription plans available.

How can I cancel my Wix account / website?
Cancelling a Wix premium package can easily be done from within your account as you can see in the screenshot:
For further details please go to Wix’s support pages and search for “canceling”.
Is there a money-back guarantee?
Yes, there is a 14-day money-back guarantee for all premium plans.
Are there any coupon or promo codes for Wix?
Wix doesn’t work a lot with promo codes. Every once in a while, they do offer seasonal sales (e.g. Black Friday). However, most of the time these promotions only include the Unlimited and E-Commerce plans. For most non-ecommerce websites, ‘Combo’ is usually the best choice.
How much is Wix Bookings?
The basic version of Wix Bookings is free (see our review). The paid plan allows you to receive payments online, offer group bookings and will also let you send out reminder emails. Here’s an overview of all plans with Wix Bookings included:
Why doesn't the eCommerce plan have unlimited bandwidth?
We don’t know! However, 10 GB is a lot when you keep in mind that Wix is supposed to be for small businesses. Let’s say the average visit costs 2 MB of bandwidth then you could have up to 5000 Visitors per month. If this still won’t be enough, you should consider a platform like Shopify that you can scale.
